Handfasting Invitations Finally Finished

Well, they are done and being sent out... It's a good job we sent save the day cards, because I am near the deadline with these!!! Poorly hands have really hampered me here, but finally they are going out to our guests. Wish I could invite ALL of YOU, my lovely blogger friends, but I know you will be with us in spirit and wishes when the day dawns in June.

I made the fronts by stamping the UMount flower 3 times and masking it. I then stamped Tracy's wonderful Aspects of Design heart flourish stamp in two corners (you HAVE to have that plate everyone!!!) and one from Kay in the opposite corners. It is all embossed in clear ep and coloured with promarkers and distress inks. I made the background paper with an enlarged image of the alcohol inked piece from the std cards, then put it into My Craft Studio to add the flourish.  It's mounted on gold and the crease card is gold.
Two Hearts Become One

I used an Elusive Image floral heart stamp, embossed in Cosmic Shimmer bright gold, to decorate the back cover and beautiful gold vellum inserts hold the actual invitiation message. I was pleased with my finished efforts... just hope the guests are, and they enjoy the day!!

Thanks so much for looking...
